2016 Japanese Blossoms Mini Wall Calendar


For hundreds of years, blossoms have been widely celebrated in Japanese literature, poetry, and art. Flower viewing, hanami, and the language of flowers, hanakotoba, are significant aspects of Japanese culture. Floral imagery is rich in symbolism and allusion, with blossoms’ brief lifespan and fragile beauty often serving as a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. This calendar’s twelve flower drawings, dated approximately 1870, are from the David Murray Collection held in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress.
